It just occurred to me that some of the most valuable life skills, as well as work skills are being lost by not fully utilizing the generation ahead
of us, and their many years of experience.
I believe this would be a huge job stimulus plan, and for the return, wouldn't be that costly.
Lower the retirement age, as an option of course,to 59.
Pay out half of monthly benefits and allow the other half to be earned by working in high schools across the country.
Classrooms would be inundated with valuable, knowledgable, mature responsible people. Ones who have the most experience in their given fields. Be it
welding, plumbing, electrical, artist, musicians, bank teller, they all have a great wealth of knowledge to share with the youth of our country.
It would free up jobs and those in their 30's-40's could move up to take their places, thus opening up vast amounts of entry level jobs which they,
the early retiree , are helping to train.
The circle of life...this is almost too easy. I think it would work.
